Federation News Blog 7 - 14/03/2022

Welcome to Blog 7

Our Federation Value for Term 4 is Responsibility

Term 4 has started very well, and we have been very happy to be able to invite parents back in to school/church for the Ash Wednesday service. We hope that this positivity will continue, but will keep everyone up to date of any required changes.

We were not expecting to have to end Term 3 so abruptly, with the appearance of Storm Eunice.  We are happy to reports that both schools are still standing strong as we look towards springtime and longer days.

Important Dates to remember:

  • West Leigh Parents' Evening - 15, 16 & 17 March 2022 
  • BJS Parents' Evening - 16 & 17 March 2022 
  • Fundraiser for Red Nose Day and Ukraine Appeal - Friday 18 March 

This year we have decided to hold a 'Dress Down' day (own clothes day), on Friday 18 March to raise funds for Red Nose Day and the DEC Ukraine Crisis appeal.  Please bring cash in to school on Friday (minimum suggested donation £1.00).  We will collect all donations and split them equally between these 2 very important causes.

  • 5PB Class Cake Sale at BJS - 3.30pm outside the 1862 building (or in the outdoor classroom in the event of bad weather)
